Even though Mike Todd comes across as headstrong and independent (as mentioned in the previous chapter), he is not a loner. As the following paragraphs describe, he is really a very social and gregarious creature at heart. Communication is very important to him, but Todd often speaks too forcefully and he may not be as good a listener as he is a speaker. Moreover, Mike Todd should be careful not to let his fast-paced life cause him to become high-strung and nervous.
Mike Todd is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful and always eager for new experiences - and his attention span is often quite brief. Todd grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he is ready to move on. Mike Todd craves frequent change and variety, as well as new situations and people.
It may be hard for Mike Todd to decide just where his talents and true vocation lie, for he has a multitude of interests and is loathe limiting himself by concentrating on just one. He is easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. His curiosity and restlessness propel Mike toward many different experiences in life, and he is willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even if it is something he does well, is tantamount to drudgery for Todd.
Mike Todd lives in his head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if Mike had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose the former. Mike Todd has a creative mind and he often lives by his wits.
He is also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and interact with people. He enjoys using and playing with words and has a real flair for getting his ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing and/or speaking are areas he has talent for.
Mike Todd also has a rather lighthearted and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement, it is hard for Mike Todd to achieve it, for he is frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility or to limit his personal freedom and mobility.
His happiness lies in using his creativity and language skills to communicate something meaningful, teach, inspire, or bring people together. Mike has an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. His faults are his lack of constancy and persistence, and his tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
The urge to learn and to communicate is essential to Mike Todd, and he expresses himself very well through writing, teaching or sharing ideas and information. Todd is persuasive and fluent with language.
Restless and inquisitive, Mike enjoys being mobile and taking short trips and excursions in order to see for himself what is going on in the world around him.
At times Mike Todd may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter his direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of him. When his life is becoming too predictable, Mike may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how he is doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with his conscious intent and desires for himself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in Mike Todd which needs to be expressed now and then.
Inwardly he is zealous and fanatical, though he may hide his personal desires and intentions, as well as the intensity of his feelings. He is driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. Mike is infatuated with power, incredibly willful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being someone Special. Mike Todd tends to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and he often seeks to emulate them. Mike has potential for tremendous good or tremendous evil.
